The past 12 years have seen revolutionary changes in knowledge of arterial hypertension. These have occurred chiefly in three areas: first, recognition of the nature of hypertensive diseases as part of a group of diseases that might be called "diseases of regulation" in which the disease results from the inherited response of the body to its environment; second, recognition of the varied neural and chemical controls of arterial pressure and tissue perfusion; and finally, demonstration that some forms of hypertension are reversible by use of both antihypertensive drugs and correction of disturbances in blood flow.
